All the talk of Apple’s next iPhone, and nothing solid backing it up! We’ve found what might be the first look at components for the redesigned iPhone. Though a cursory glance would suggest they’re just some off-the-shelf components, it doesn’t seem that way.
Apple’s automotive bid with CarPlay has just expanded with a handful of new high-powered partners. CarPlay partners have already joined the team earlier this year, this list just expanding on an already strong selection of creators. Alfa Romero, Abarth, Audi, Chrysler, Dodge, Fiat, Jeep, Mazda, and RAM have all been announced to join the crew.
It’s not the sort of speech team that’d win tournaments in high school, but the sort that’d replace Apple’s reliance on Nuance speech recognition software that’s forming behind the scenes. Word from several sources suggests that Apple’s creation of a speech research team means big things for Siri. After Microsoft released Cortana and Google’s speech recognition has hit Android Wear, it’s high time Apple stepped up their game.
At the close of the month, Apple launched updates for both OS X Mavericks OS on Macs as well as the mobile iOS platform. While Mavericks 10.9.4 and iOS 7.1.2 do come with a few, very few in fact, new features, the focus of the update is to address security issues and bug fixes, including one that was discovered shortly after the unveiling of iOS 8.
A lot has been learned about iOS 8 since Developers have had their chance to toy with it. This newest item might be the coolest we’ve seen. In opening up their platform a bit, Apple is also encouraging more third-party extensions for Safari on mobile. The famed 1Password might have the coolest one yet.
Today we’re having a look at a rather nicely produced demonstration of what it’d look like to see iOS 8 on an iPhone 6, and it got us wondering. What will Apple do with iOS 8 as far as stretching for a larger display? Between the iPhone 4 and the iPhone 5, the display became tall enough to fit another row of icons, making the answer obvious.
A new iPhone 6 leak is giving us the first look at what’s said to be the front display panel, offering up some details that could put a solid nod in the way of other leaks being accurate. While just the display glass, we see some subtle design changes in effect, and one feature that could end up being a new iPhone aesthetic, and make it easier to use.
Oh, iPhone 6, why do you taunt us so? New reports are calling into question previous ones we’d heard about the next iPhone, this time saying the images we’ve all seen may not be accurate at all. Aside from an aesthetic change, there are some actual material difference this time around. Turns out the new iPhone may be a lot like the old one.
